Psoriasis Tip - Knowing Your Own Body

In our early years of having psoriasis, we'd visit dermatologists (skin doctor) and in the 2-10 minute doctor appointment accept whatever they told us. After a number of years, we learned that knowing our body and our psoriasis is important. Often dermatologists will move on to the next item and then next item on their psoriasis treatment list for a patient. If certain items haven't worked in the past, if you don't like certain kinds of treatments, or if you are worried about side effects from a particular treatment, let your doctor know. We found that in time it was much better to collaborate / participate with our dermatologist since we know certain things about what we want for our body when we go to the dermatologist.
